Caravan

Lyrics: Van Morrison
Music: Van Morrison

Sung by Elliott Peck with Phil Lesh & the Terrapin Family Band at a Jazz Fest celebration in 2019.

And the caravan is on it's way
I can hear the merry gypsies play
Mama mama look at Emma Rose
She's a-playin with the radio
La, la, la la, la la la
La, la, la la, la la la

And the caravan has all my friends
It will stay with me until the end
Gypsy Robin, sweet Emma Rose
Tell me everything I need to know
La, la, la la, la la la
La, la, la la, la la la

Turn up your radio and let me hear the song
Switch on your electric light
Then we can get down to what is really wrong
I long to hold you tight so I can feel you
Sweet lady of the night I shall reveal you
Turn it up, turn it up, little bit higher, radio
Turn it up, turn it up, so you know, radio
La, la, la la, la la la
La, la, la la, la la la

And the caravan is painted red and white
That means ev'rybody's staying overnight
Barefoot gypsy player round the campfire sing and play
And a woman tells us of her ways
La, la, la la, la la la
La, la, la la, la la la

Turn up your radio and let me hear the song
Switch on your electric light
Then we can get down to what is really wrong
I long to hold you tight so I can feel you
Sweet lady of the night I shall reveal you
Turn it up, turn it up, little bit higher, radio
Turn it up, that's enough, so you know it's got soul
[etc]
